Roe delivers another emotionally hot omegaverse romance

Levity CoverLevity by Roe Horvat

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is definitely the most sexual of the two books in this series but it also has an underlying message about self-worth and how to achieve it.

I will say from the start there were aspects of the kink in this narrative which aren’t my favourite, however, as ever Roe handles them with skill and creates a hugely emotional and powerfully connected couple who use said kinks to cement their bond.

Leo is a lost soul, he’s been badly treated in the past and believed he deserved it, he loves humiliation kink and servitude but it’s all tied in to his belief he’s a horrible person and worthless.

Once he meets Davidson and discovers he’s a Dragon Mate, you can see the slow dawning of trust between them growing, even while Leo struggles to come to terms with the fact that dragons are real and the dreams he’s had his whole life have been of his fated mate.

Davidson, in turn, finds it difficult to balance his need to make Leo happy with the knowledge that he has to make sure his younger mate knows he can say no and be free to make his own decisions both in and out of the bedroom.

The sex is as you’d expect from Roe, it’s insanely hot, powerfully erotic and hugely emotive, it all serves a purpose and it isn’t just thrown in for the sake of it.

I found the secondary plot in this one to be a little bit weaker than in book one, there’s still the same kind of sense of a danger lurking in the background, in this case it’s Leo’s abusive ex, who he has fled from at the beginning of the book.

For me, though, I was just lacking a bit more of a build up to the reveal which I had guessed was going to be the case a bit earlier on. Still, those moments of tension are carried out with a lot of skill and the pacing is excellent once the threat becomes known.

We get lovely guest appearances from Lawrence and Ernest, as well as the wider Bracknell clan, and there’s a beautiful Epilogue which had me smiling a lot.

This is another fab addition to Roe’s wider shifter/omegaverse and I am very much enjoying the world he’s created.

Lots going on in this third irresistible dragons entry from Nora

416X3B1UFwL._SY346_Dragon’s Fight by Nora Phoenix

My Rating: 4 out of 5

There’s a lot of plot leftovers from book two which get moved along in this entry from Nora and – you’ll all be pleased to read – the relationship cliffhanger she dropped at the end of Dragon’s Honor is also sorted out!

Jermon, Riordan and Wilmer are struggling to deal with the later’s amnesia, caused by the horrible injuries he suffered when the dragon slayers attached the settlement in the previous book.

There’s also something weird going on with their omega and with the Murphy’s hanging around and generally being utterly unhelpful and, in some cases, downright rude and threatening, things are a confusing mix for this throuple.

I thoroughly enjoyed this latest entry and it was at times painful, others joyous, to see how patient Jermon and Riordan were with Wilmer as he struggled to get any of his memories of the past two years back.

However, love will out, and as they spent more time together, Wilmer found himself drawn again to both of the men who’d told him they were all fated mates. I really liked how organically this felt as Nora brought the three of them back together again.

With all the other stuff going on in the background, the romance didn’t feel like it was neglected at all, it all blended perfectly into the plot and I was enthralled by everything that was going on.

My only reason for not giving this book five stars is that I would have liked more time with the three of them once they’d reconnected as a throuple but I’m very much looking forward to the next book in the series and seeing where the story goes next.

Scorching hot and super sweet omegaverse romance from Roe

63291771._SY475_Trouble by Roe Horvat

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

Kirby’s book is here and it’s a surprisingly tender and sweet exploration of how someone can learn to value themselves as more than just an object for sex.

Of course, it’s Roe, so it’s insanely, off-the-charts hot with knotting, heat breeding, fisting, dirty talk and all the other associated delights of his omegaverse world.

When alpha bartender Hugh, who’s had a crush on Kirby for years, finds out there’s a chance to star with him in his next porn film – which will be focused on his heat – he decides he’d rather have this experience than none with the omega he’s sure is his mate.

Kirby’s also been crushing hard on Hugh but he’s hidden it well because, while he’s proud of his career in porn, he’s still got unresolved complicated feelings about his time on the streets when he did anything he could to stay alive.

Roe skillfully navigates through the complexities of the two men’s feelings, showing the reader how each looks out for the other, respects their opinions and does small acts of kindness, without either of them ever really taking a chance on discussing their situation.

The shooting of the porn film itself is both detailed and yet removed from the minutia and mechanical elements of filming sex with people watching.

It’s pretty clear from the off that feelings won’t be able to stay suppressed but I’ll leave it to you to find out just how Roe manages to turn this erotic event into a beautiful romance!
